Title under cartoon: "That's sixty leagues we've finished!" French soldiers sit on the ground in various positions of weariness, while their officer--still mounted on his horse--surveys them. One soldier muses," Thirty-some leagues and we have to rest ...Abd-el-Kader will finish well by wearing himself out, devil take him!" (Vfirginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
